Attorney General Reyes opposes unlawful EPA regulations on traditional energy production

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – Attorney General Sean D. Reyes joined 21 attorneys general West Virginia v. EPA in a lawsuit seeking to overturn EPA's supplemental effluent limits and standards for the point source steam power generation category. The petition for review, filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, was led by West Virginia and Georgia.

Contrary to the law, this rule is neither economically nor technically feasible. It would therefore force the closure of power plants, thereby damaging traditional American energy sources. This rule is yet another attempt by the federal government to impose its radical environmental protection plans on the American economy and energy sector. The states are therefore asking the court to declare this rule illegal and strike it off the books.

Utah, West Virginia and Georgia were joined by the states of Alaska, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Wyoming.
